James Halliday Wine Companion
96 Points - Produced from 106yo vines on the Johnno's Vineyard, with only 250 dozen made. Hand-picked, basket-pressed unclarified juice gives the wine an extra degree of texture and structure, and underwrites its longevity; traditional cut grass and lemongrass flavours are punctuated by zesty acidity on the long, crystal clear palate. A bottle of liquid history, cheap at the price. 10.5% alc.

94 Points - 2015 wasn’t an easy year in the Hunter Valley, and yet, these releases from Tyrrells are very good. Slight honey and sweet grass, dusting of white pepper, limes. Clean, fresh, lovely texture, chalky and almost grippy, crunchy length with a mild herbal aftertaste adding interest. It’s a lighter, less intense iteration of this vineyard’s produce, but has a precision, delicacy and beauty that’s hard to resist. Closure : Screwcap. Drink : 2018 - 2035+
